2nd best

By

Comments about Alexander Reeds Classique Alto Saxophone Reeds:

they are a step up from traditional vandoren blue box, but are still 2 steps down from the vandoren v21 reeds, which is understandable since the v21 havnt even been out for 6 months, just waiting to see if Alexander comes out with even better reeds, but untill then, go with the v21

Alto Sax reeds - Alexander Classique

By

Comments about Alexander Reeds Classique Alto Saxophone Reeds:

Save your money. First one selected to use has about a 2 strength; the second one is 3.5 to 4. This is after the prescibed conditioning. The gimmick is the fancy tin box. Where is the selection screening claimed for these hand selected reeds? A box of Hemke's has a better yield.

Great reed, slightly more edge than Vandoren

By

Comments about Alexander Reeds Classique Alto Saxophone Reeds:

Vandoren was a good concert reed, and worked well with my Selmer C* mouthpiece. But after a decade playing in a local concert band and listening to our recorded performances, I wanted my alto to sound less like a clarinet and more like a sax. The Superial Classique reed adds a little edge to the tone, giving it a more vocal, human quality. The Classique is a bit stiffer than I expected, and takes a bit more wind than the Vandoren I was using. I went from a Vandoren 2 to a Classique 2.5, but will step down soon to a Classique 2. The Classique reeds seem fairly consistent; each reed in the box is just as playable as the rest.

Best Reeds Ive Ever Used

By 

from Tampa

Comments about Alexander Reeds Classique Alto Saxophone Reeds:

These reeds are the best quality I have used in my time playing sax. These are strictly classical; however they are the best classical reeds out there. I have used Vandoren blue box, Rico, and hand-made reeds and nothing compares to these. Usually in a box of 10 reeds you will have 2 or 3 "bad" ones. However with the Classiques, I have only had one "bad" reed out of the 6 boxes of five I have purchased. They make playing the sax an absolute joy for me. I recommend these reeds to higher level musicians only.
